If you are contemplating immigration to Canada, there are a number of things which you need to consider.
Why Do You Want to Immigrate to Canada?
Canada, as with most countries, has strict guidelines as to who can immigrate there. If you employ the services of an immigration consultant to help you with the application process, they will ask you this question in order to establish which class you are eligible for.
Which Immigration Class Are You Eligible For?
There are four main visa classes under which you can apply for immigration to Canada. Skilled Worker, Family, Business and Temporary classes are all options, each having different requirements and regulations.
What Are The Time Frames?
If you are thinking that you can move to Canada within a couple of months of deciding to do so, you are quite wrong. Whilst, each application is different and processing times differ depending on the type of visa you are applying for, you can expect to have to wait 12 to 26 months (plus) to receive a decision on your visa application.
After that, for the majority of classes, if your application is accepted, you must arrive in Canada within one year from the date of your medical tests. You should keep in mind, that if your application is declined and you wish to re-apply this will add on further time.
Who Will Process Your Application?
Do you plan on filing your application yourself? If you do, you need to make sure that you have it all filled out correctly and provide all of the required information. The last thing you want to do is create further delays. The other option is to use a visa / immigration consultant, this can make your application process a lot smoother.
Once you have considered the above basics, you can proceed to the more in-depth part of your Canada immigration and start to fill out the application form.
